It’s catch up time!!!
I made a Hot Patterns Superfantastic top for my mom! It did turn out Superfantastically! I used abalone buttons on it. She lives in PA, so I mailed a muslin home to her so I could see the fit adjustments that needed to be made. She has a shindig coming up and she wanted something new.
Since I was mailing things home, I made my sis a Cashmerette Appleton. It’s super cute! I also made her a slip, but I forgot to get a pic of it before it was mailed!
Here is the dress on me. This was made in the smallest size with the smallest cup, I think a 12C for a 40, 30, 32″ figure. I”m about a 34 bust, 29 waist and 39 hip. I think it fits me pretty well and I’d totally wear it if it was in my colors. If I made it again, I’d probably figure out a way to extend the front flap over a little more. It was ok, but I’d prefer a little more coverage when seated.
For me, I tried on this top in a local store a few weekends ago and loved it!
It was $30 though and that seemed to be a lot to me for a glorified T when I could make my own for much less. What I didn’t realize is that there are no knit patterns out there for this style! I found a woven pattern, but it’s all pieced and has no sleeves.
Instead of messing around with that, I decided to try New Look 6415 for a similar look. Overall, I’m giving it a not quite. I don’t have the bottom hemmed yet…but I’m not really in love with it. I was considering just trimming the angle off and making it a normal T. I need to try it on with some leggings first though.
